Abstract

A mode conversion theory of the fast magnetosonic wave is compared with the experimental results in a deuterium plasma with minority hydrogen. The direct measurements of toroidal wave length, toroidal damping length, and the increase of ion temperature show that parameter dependences of ion heating are well explained by the mode conversion theory including tunneling, reflection, and absorption of the fast wave at a two-ion hybrid resonance layer.
